This was a really good book. It had great, lovable characters, a very interesting plot and plenty of surprises.
I'm not gonna recap the whole book. I'll just talk highlights. First of all, I think most people find greek mythology pretty interesting. I know I do. After reading Percy Jackson, which is a much more lighthearted version of Greek- myth, I found myself craving more reading material of that genre. So, I was delighted when I realized that the back story in this book, the creation of the mermaids, selkies and sirens, all went back to Poseidon and Medusa.
I loved the world underwater. The rituals of the mermaids sounded so awesome, especially the healing ceremony for Koraline and the welcoming ceremony for Yara. The pearls and wishes were a really cool idea. I also loved the concept of the color ranking and the soul sharing.
The only reason this book didn't get five stars from me was because of some of the language. I really hate how every year theres a couple new slang words that circulate the nation like wildfire. Words like "legit" drive me absolutely insane. There were others too, but I can't remember them all. That, however didn't take too much away from my overall enjoyment of the story. I would give it like, 4 and 3/4 stars if I could. This was a very fun and imaginative story that I would highly recommend!...more
